Uses for Leftover Wallpaper

August 29, 2017

A small fawn figurine on a textured white piece of wallpaper.It's easy to make and it looks good! Taking photos without a backdrop can look sloppy, and who wants to spend their money on a light box? You can get a wallpaper book at your local paint store. I got mine at our nearest Sherwin Williams for free. The price ranges can range from ten dollars to none! All you need is your wallpaper, some tape, and a lamp or two for proper lighting. The lamp is optional but is recommended.

I had a roll of wallpaper leftover and decided to used it to reline the drawers in kitchen and bathroom. It worked great and saved money.

Use leftover pieces of wallpaper or pages from a wallpaper book to make book covers. Many of these book covers are even tear-resistant.

After installing a new wallpaper boarder, I noticed a few flaws on the wall itself. I decided to camouflage the flaws by adding some pretty accents from the remaining wallpaper border.

I have some discontinued wall covering books and I would like to use the book of design pages to decorate bookshelves, etc. The problem is, I don't know how to get the pins or screws that hold all of the sample wall covering designs together. Can anyone suggest what I can do? They are not easy to get off.

Thank you for any help.

I had the same problem but I just worked and worked with the screws/pins. You need a strong hand for one thing but using a screw driver (flat head) and pliers, while prying up with the driver, pull with the pliers, it does take time but it does work!


Let me know if you succeeded.

Use the grinding wheel on a small dremel to cut them off.
